Shakewell Begins

We started Shakewell as a jam band playing gigs for food at the Blue Bison Cafe back in February. After cycling through many different names (Mostly Dangerous, Captain Cove's One Night Stand Band, Broke) and after honing a sound of our own, we began to craft Shakewell! It was a fast start considering that many of our members are currently key parts of other local projects: Sam Ore is the bassist for Ski/Surf Rock band: The Skurfs and the guitarist for local Blues band: Three-Eared Dog. Jordan Smith is the Bassist/Vocalist for Three-Eared Dog. And Cove Jasmin is The Vocalist/Keyboardist for Missoula's favorite funk band: Kung Fu Kongress. So time was limited, but with so much talent under one roof, it was only weeks before we had a solid set of original tunes and a calendar full of events to play, so now with the warm weather drawing closer and closer, we'll see what a little bit of sun and some lively Missoula summer can do for Shakewell!!
